Wisconsin’s Unemployment Rate Drops

Good. I’m glad the Supreme Court struck down Evers’ lockdown.

The Wisconsin economy’s labor market improved during June as its seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 8.5% and the state added 99,300 private sector jobs during the month according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data released today by the state Department of Workforce Development.

The state’s unemployment rate improved significantly from May when it was 12.1%, according to revised data, and is well below the national rate of 11.1%

In June of 2019, the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 3.4%, and the nation’s was 3.7%.

    Hmmm…lower than the national rate you say.  Tony Evers must be a better leader than Trump.  Otherwise we would be higher than the national rate.

    Or, Randall, the Wisconsin Supreme Court deserves the credit.
    Evers hasn’t done much and maybe that’s why things are getting better.

    Evers a “leader”?

    Randall, as has already been said, the SC gets the credit. I have seen nothing so far that leads me to think Evers and Palm wouldn’t still have the lockdown in place today… have you?
